Any Chance Of West Jet Flying To Mexico?

Sun Jul 31, 2005 11:14 pm

I wonder if they have considered flying to Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo or any other Mexican destination. (I've flown on West Jet twice, and I think their service is really good).

sorry if this has been posted before.

I could definetly see them flying to any of those destinations. I'm not really familiar with their plans for new routes but there could definetly be a possibility. I think it would be great because their service is FANTASTIC.

I *could* be wrong, but I believe that Westjet *did* or *does* fly to Mexico in the winter for some charter operations.....

I could be wrong though..

The resort cities that you mention are certainly a possibility, especially from western Canada cities such as Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton. The flights would probably done a charter or package holiday basis. The 737NG aircraft could handle any of the possible routes.

The reason I ask is that my cousin says he took West Jet to Cabo San Lucas a couple of years ago. However, there is nothing on their web site about Mexico

I agree with you. I think when spotting at YVR, I saw some Westjet charter to Cancun.

I believe that Westjet was doing some charters for Air Transat holidays to Mexico. Not sure how long it lasted though,

WestJet and Air Transat just renewed their partnership for another 5 years, so you'll see lots of WestJet in Mexico, but it's all charters.

Nothing Scheduled for Mexico other than charter to CUN, PVR, MZT from places like YEG, YYC, YVR, YWG and YLW I believe, they are a seasonal thing. From the east (YYZ, YOW, YHZ, YUL) they fly to VRA, HOG, SXM and those kind of places for Air Transit. I think in total WS is up to 52 Charter destinations in 8 countries for Air Transit at various points in the year.

WestJet flies charter ops to Mexico and points in the Carribbean year-round, actually.

Yes, that is correct WestJet operates flights to Mexico on behalf of Air Transat Holidays. So while WestJet is the operator flying the routes, to book seats, you need to go through Air Transat Holidays, not Westjet.
